    for those that helped me over this past week just an update....

    Update - i went back to vets and got Metacam pain killer as he wasnt himself had odd nibble at hay but nothing much am having to still syringe feed him but proving stressful really, keeping up with the metaclamoride howver you spell it and fluids also giving dioraylte as suggested by a lady he had odd nibble of carrot past two days has done poo oevrnight soft and stuck to bum so cleaned that up and then this morning i saw mucus in bed first time, i am taking him to vets later today as i think that might be sig of infection now tummy still but bloated but not as bad as was other day but what else can they do for him i just dont want them chargin me for doing the same i am doing cost us nearly £100 so far and hubby not happy but i am determined to get him better regardless, will he need fluid injections now can i as for them to give them to take home what else is there they will do (vets dont seemt o have clue of rabbits and dont know where to start finding a rabbit specialist one or i wish he would eat otherwise he aint gonna poo he hates te Recovery - will be taking him back today but just feel like we not getting anywhere he on the gut stimlulant twice daily and matacam twice daily just two small drops

    i think it may be Gi stasis after researching but how long can this go on for will he make a recovery or his 5-6 days too long to be like this?

    5-6 days is long but you must keep trying especially with the food, poo is a great sign
